lol what an oopsie, i said people had trouble making connections "for whatever reason" when what i really meant was that modern capitalism has atomized, isolated, and exhausted us so efficiently that most of us don't remember what living in community looks like or never had a chance to learn. gosh, silly me!

I feel like nothing can emulate the public square unless it emulates proximity. I don’t think humans have readily adapted to a Borg consciousness of the world’s anguish.

It’s like violence. You have to look away almost reflexively, or you sit in it so long it dramatically affects how you see the real world. It does harm as it reshapes you.

This isn’t the public square. This is negative stimulus amplification over years and years

And while white people continue to complain about bullshit, #BlackLivesMatter gets another murderer with a badge off the streets. phillymag.com/news/2018/09/03/

I've noticed that if you point out certain facts, people look at you funny - maybe cos it would cause them to reevaluate their actions or beliefs, so they prefer to pretend issues don't exist. Never started as a conspiracy theorist just very skeptical of tech firms. And now MSM.

PSA: Due to a catastrophe, there's a chance that you're not following people from hackers.town anymore, and they're not following you, either. We got rolled back a month or so.

So, check your friendos and buddaroos. Reacquaint yourselves. Play some Monopoly. Whatever.

Yeah, I used to feel insulted by the term “mansplain” too. I got over it when I realized that we’re trained by school and society to do it, and if we don’t make the term specific to men, we’ll never fucking learn.

Do better, men.

There's a lot of customer culture attitude in Mastodon-the-community, where people treat Gargron and other devs, the instance admins, moderators, etc. like service workers. It's a spoiled, entitled attitude, where "the customer is always right" and it's okay to be abusive or demeaning to people providing a service when they don't give you what you want.

The fediverse isn't a corporate model. When you're rude or demeaning to someone here, you're being abusive to volunteers building a playground
